Sunday evening saw the Semi-Finals of the Knock-out Competition.
Team Ramsay had progressed to the Semi after winning their Quarter Final match against Team Lambie 9-3, and were now drawn against Team Anderson for the first Semi. Dave Carr’s Team had also won their game against Team Hope 9-2 in the other Quarter Final match, and were now drawn against Team Scott for the Semi.
Jim’s rink got off to a great start against Dave A’s rink winning a four in the first end, then scoring a 2 and then a 3 in the next two ends to consolidate his position. Despite winning a single shot in the fifth end Dave’s rink were unable to make up lost ground and Jim’s rink, of Ken Hunter Christine Hope and Ian Neil, marched into the Final winning by a hefty margin.
In the other Semi Final match, Dave Carr’s rink took the first three ends by a single shot before Iain Scott’s rink responded to win the next three ends again by a single shot. All square then 3-3 going into the final end. This was a very closely contested match which Iain’s rink, of John Jacobs (sub) Tom Griffin and Alicia Neil, eventually won 4-3 to reach the Final.
So, Team Ramsay will meet Team Scott in the Knock-out Final to be played on Tuesday 3rd December at 7.30pm.
